I discovered my passion for watercolours while I was studying graphic design in Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. I thought I needed a solid paying job at the moment so I continued with my major taking illustration classes on the side. When I graduated I started working as an art director in Istanbul and had to put my brushes down for 5 years. When I decided to join my family business, I finally found the time to get reunited with my paint tubes. (At that time you couldn't find watercolours in tubes in Istanbul so I would end up spending hours in Blick in Soho whenever I visited NY.) What started as a personal project became a bill paying job once I put my work on Behance...

Apart from my commercial work, I love finding the funny, weird and probably long forgotten moments in the past. Whenever I am painting I feel Norman Rockwell's ghost hovering over my shoulder, judging my work and I am thankful that he is taking the time to haunt me instead of enjoying himself in heaven.
